Meander Makes the Switch

The Longhorns pulled a bit of a rabbit out of the hat Monday when Amarillo Palo Duro wide receiver Montrel Meander flipped from Washington State to Texas.

A 6-foot-3 sleeper with sub-22-second speed in the 200-meter dash, Meander was recruited by several schools as a safety after putting up a 109-tackle season as a senior. Meander was also a playmaker on the offensive side of the ball, averaging 15.2 yards per catch — 364 yards on 24 receptions — with three touchdowns.

Meander visited Texas over the weekend, telling that the visit "went well, and I enjoyed it." It took him a little over 24 hours from visit end to commitment switch.

The Longhorns had been looking for an outside receiver to stretch the field deep in this class to go with the chain-moving Jake Oliver and slick slot receiver Jacorey Warrick. Meander's commitment gives Texas 15 for the 2013 class.
